Never underestimate the value of a good bakery, especially in a city the size of New York City. Sure, there are many, but not all of them deserve to be exalted.

This list of the five best bakeries in New York City caters to budget and individual style, while also suggesting what each bakery is perfect for.

Oh, and of course Dominique Ansel is included.
